My name is Alice Roberts and I am an Ofsted registered childminder and qualified nursery nurse with 8 years childcare experience. I hold a level 3 diploma in early years learning and childcare. Prior to registering as a childminder, I have managed toddler and baby rooms within busy day nurseries, was employed as a childminders assistant and prior to relocating to Wendover, held the position of Deputy Manager at a nursery in Chelsea, London.
It is my aim to ensure that your children are given both exciting and challenging experiences in order for them to learn, develop and thrive. My experience ranges from the youngest of babies to after school care. I work in partnership with parents to ensure that the child's needs are met and that they feel happy and secure.
I hold a BA (Honours) degree in Fine Art from the University of Southampton and I previously worked as a theatre director prior to establishing a career in childcare. The leadership, management and creative skills that I have acquired from working in performing and visual arts are easily transferable to early years care. I am passionate about creative learning and apply this by encouraging children to learn and develop through engaging in imaginative play and creative and stimulating activities
I provide childcare in a safe and secure home environment. My home is in Wendover where I live with my husband and three year old son. We are based in beautiful little Victorian end of terrace cottage just a few minutes walk from the local schools, pre-schools and town centre. We have a great garden where we can do a whole range of activities, including digging, growing things, bug hunts and sand and water play and their is lots of space for the children be physically active.
On a typical day we will do lots of fun activities, getting outside in garden and local area whatever the weather, doing messy and creative art activities, baking and cooking and giving the children lots of choice to play and explore with the wide range of toys and resources I provide. We will attend local play groups, parks and the library and our great location enables us to explore the wealth of activities, experiences and beautiful countryside Wendover and the surrounding Chilterns have to offer.
Planned activities will be based on the children's interests and each child will have a learning journal where their progress and development can be tracked and shared with parents.
I will work with you to ensure your child's daily routine is followed, providing time and space for naps and quiet time too.
I provide nutritious home cooked meals in the setting as well as healthy snacks throughout the day but if you wish to provide any food yourself such as puréed food for babies please let me know and we can arrange for this.
